Derek Hough Injured

21 April 2015 1:25 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Say it ain't so! Derek Hough has sustained multiple injuries.

"We can confirm he was injured last night rehearsing for the 'DWTS' 10th Anniversary special," a rep for the show told Access Hollywood on Tuesday.

The pro dancer shared (and quickly deleted) an ominous photo of his legs on Monday night – his right foot in a boot, and his left ankle wrapped and supported by and aircast. His friend and fellow "DWTS" pro Mark Ballas is seen in the background giving a thumbs down sign.

Willow Shields has a confession to make. The Dancing With the Stars contestant known for her role as Prim Everdeen, sister to Jennifer Lawrence's character Katniss in The Hunger Games movies, is coming clean. "I'm an alien," she told us backstage. "What? Sorry, I zoned out for a second there," her partner Mark Ballas said. Um, us too. What did she say? "I just said I'm an alien," she replied. "Oh, you are an alien," Mark said. "I am," Willow concurred. Yeah…what?! Willow, who scored a 34 for her Salsa with Mark and a 39 for her team dance, was referring to her "alien" extra body parts: ribs. "I have »

Dancing With the Stars Week 6 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

20 April 2015 7:49 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Oh, to be a fly on the wall when the producers of Dancing With the Stars were brainstorming the weekly themes for Season 20.

I totally understood the corporate cross-promotion of last week’s Disney theme, and the emotionally charged Most Memorable Year motif of the week before that. But I’m struggling to figure out the exact components that made up this week’s Spring Break theme, other than the obvious climb in temperature that we’ve seen since Punxsutawney Phil poked his head out in February and reminded us he’s useless.

Even though a handful of Monday’s routines revolved around beachy themes, »

"Hunger Games" star Willow Shields joins AccessHollywood.com as our behind-the-scenes celebrity blogger for Season 20 of ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

Here is Willow's latest post…

Willow Shields and Mark Ballas during ‘Dancing with the Stars’ rehearsals (ABC)

Stories have always been important to me. When I was young, unable to read yet on my own, my parents would read to me at various times during the day, and especially every night before bed.

I will never forget "Ferdinand the Bull," "Where the Wild Things Are," and Laura Ingalls Wilder's adventures on the prairie.

Dancing With the Stars Week 5 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

13 April 2015 7:36 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Have you ever wanted to see The Bachelor‘s Chris Soules dressed in a toga? How about Rumer Willis in purple face paint? Or Mark Ballas with the face of a bunny rabbit?

Well, even if none of those experiences were on your TV bucket list (and if they were, I have a lot of questions), Dancing With the Stars delivered them on Monday, as the remaining contestants took the stage for Disney Night.

And even though a fairytale ending was in store for Season 20’s strongest couples, one unlucky pair did not ride — er, sashay — into the sunset.

Dancing With the Stars' Willow Shields Scores Big With "Fierce" Hunger Games Tribute

7 April 2015 6:29 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Willow Shields honored The Hunger Games on Dancing With the Stars and received a big payoff. Shields and her pro partner Mark Ballas received a total score of 39, the highest score of the season with their contemporary Hunger Games dance to Coldplay's "Atlas." "I still can't really believe it," Shields told E! News' Ali Fedotowsky after her performance. "I feel amazing." The dance itself was sort of like Hunger Games fan fiction. Ballas said they thought of it as "like Katniss didn't volunteer and [Prim] had to actually go in" to the Hunger Games. Click: Who went home on DWTS? "Prim had to go in, but was boss, so…it kind of worked!" »

Dancing With the Stars Week 4 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

6 April 2015 7:35 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

As the 2015 Ncaa Tournament comes to a close this Monday evening, it’s got me thinking about how my Dancing With the Stars Season 20 bracket would have looked, had I filled one out.

Sure, I’d have Nastia Liukin and Derek Hough going to the Final Four, with Rumer Willis and Val Chmerkovskiy following close behind. I’d be a little skeptical of dancers like Charlotte McKinney and Redfoo, who seemed like odd choices for the DWTS roster to begin with.

But there are other competitors about whose futures I would have been very, very wrong, judging by the unpredictability »

1 April 2015 1:20 AM, PDT | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

Ballas snagged the place 5 years ago for $679k ... so he won't be walking away empty-handed, »

Wow it's been a crazy week. But first a little about my last performance, the Argentine Tango! Yayyyyyy, I was so happy with our performance! Mark Ballas and I really worked hard on this dance. Plus, I felt super motivated by being able to dance to my favorite song, "Somebody That I Used to Know," for My Jam Monday. I know a lot of people thought there is no way a 14-year-old ...

The second round of Season 20 of Dancing With the Stars went off tonight with ‘My Jam Monday,’ where the stars and their pro-partners got to dance to whatever song they wanted. The night was filled with surprises, including unexpected song choices, huge performance improvements, and the revelation of which star was going to be the first to go home.

Video: The Best, Worst and Weirdest Dances From the 'DWTS' Season 20 Premiere

Here are the best, the worst, and the weirdest moments from the Dancing With The Stars’ bombastic ‘My Jam Monday’ spectacular.

Suzanne Somers Shakes Her Stuff

Suzanne and Tony did a great number set to Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" that started off with the 68-year-old actress in a pink-fringe dress dancing on the top of a leopard print grand piano, and it only got better from there.

Dancing With the Stars Week 2 Results: Did the Right Couple Go Home?

23 March 2015 7:58 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Not that Dancing With the Stars‘ title really needs to be longer — but after the powerhouse performances delivered on Monday’s installment, may we suggest that Season 20 be known as Dancing With the Stars: The Comeback Kids?

Following a season premiere that left much to be desired from the celebs on the dance floor, Week 2 found even the lowest-scoring couples making an excellent case for why they should walk away with this year’s Mirrorball trophy.

Charlotte McKinney, for example, displayed impressive precision on her cha-cha with Keo Motsepe (while also reminding us that cyberbullying is not cool); Redfoo, »
